More proof that sending your children to public schools is child abuse:
Greg Schiller, a science teacher at Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts, was suspended in February, the same month the students entered their projects in the competition.
KCAL9â€™s Jeff Nguyen reported one of the entries was an air cannon and the other was an electromagnetic coil gun, which freshman Asa Ferguson submitted and was later confiscated.
â€śIt has appliances in roller coasters and spaceships. Itâ€™s been theorized to be able to launch spaceships in space for cheaper,â€ť Ferguson said.
Ferguson believes the word â€śgunâ€ť caused his project to be pulled.
â€śI think that if I had said it was an electromagnetic propulsion system it would not have been taken out,â€ť he said.
Hard to believe that the U.S. lags behind other countries in science education.
